I am a practicing Occupational therapist with over 32 years experience, and a licensed Massage therapist for 23 years. During this time I have treated a wide variety of clients from 1 day old to 100 years of age! I have a passion for healing my patients and have extensive training in a variety of modalities. I have had the opportunity of late to assist in the healing of post COVID symptoms returning patients to prior level of functioning. My goal with treatment is to listen to my clients and treat their whole essence (body, mind, spirit) to assist them in reaching their goals.
